You’ve heard of, and probably ‘celebrated,’ Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Even better is #GivingTuesday – one powerful national day of giving, raising funds and awareness for important causes everywhere. This year it’s on December 2nd.

#GivingTuesday encourages people to give however they can. No one charity is supported –you choose who to support and how, whether it’s a tweet or a donation or much more.

On December 2nd, share your own stories of giving, and encourage your friends and family to do the same. We’d love to have you on board as a #GivingTuesday Social Media Ambassador to help ‘get out the give’ so more people will participate in, and benefit from, #GivingTuesday. It’s easy to do – just join and share.

Join – Go to givingtuesday.org and click on JOIN, then scroll down and click on the Social Media Ambassador button.  We’ll send you 1-2 emails each week, between now and December—you’ll learn from like-minded peers, gain access to exclusive content, be able to submit your own ideas.

Share –What does #GivingTuesday mean to you? With more than 12,000 nonprofit partners and projects who have come together for #GivingTuesday, no one charity is supported, YOU CHOOSE who to support and how. Share a Facebook status about a project in your community, or if you’re a blogger, blog about your favorite organization. Whether it’s a tweet or a donation, your voice is what is important in spreading the word to build this movement.
